The Gathering Activities
The Gathering Group undertake a small number of regular activities throughout the year. Because our membership is spread throughout Australia, and we do not have permanent premises, there are not many opportunities for us to get together. However, when we do gather we all have something in common…Hill End & Tambaroora ancestors, so no one is a stranger.
Click on this link to take you to the page with all the details: The Gathering has traditionally been held on the first Saturday in March each year. In 2020 it will be on Saturday 7 March. Hope to see you there.
Our next market will be run on the October Long Weekend, on Saturday, 5 October 2019 between 9.30am and 4pm. We welcome new and returning stall holders. Bookings are essential as space is limited so if you are interested in having a stall please contact us for more details.
It’s time to SPRING into Hill End!
Not one but two great events are happening in Hill End over the weekend of 19 & 20 October 2019. Hill End Arts Council, Bathurst Regional Art Gallery and National Parks & Wildlife Service are combining with the Gathering Group to present a jam-packed weekend of history, food, family and art and culture.
Only got time for one, no worries, choose your day – or make it a full weekend and enjoy a taste of all that this iconic goldmining town has to offer.
For updates on both these events follow us on Facebook.
